entry passes to post are a combination of factors -
1. MR needs to create angles for entry passes in their offensive pattern/scheme
2. Bigs need to be able to seal defender on one side of their hip or the other and give passer a great target
3. Passer needs to get ball to the correct side of post man and at a height that post player can receive without losing position he established (low passes at shin to Stockard or Ward are not good passes as an example)

Post players need to receive and make move not take too much time to allow defense recovery
Lastly post players need to recognize where double is coming from and keep ball HOT if necessary

go rams
Lucky for me I played enough to know how to throw a post entry pass. The angles are there within the offense. Guys just need to learn how to make the post pass. Everything you've listed is something that is missing much more from today's game than from decades past.

Item 1 on your list “create angles for entry passes in their offensive pattern/schemes” IS a feature of MR’s offense. How many times have you heard him talk about the need for us to reverse the ball on offense? With the ball on one side of the court, some big defenders will front our center. So by reversing the ball, our guy just has to seal the defender and keep the defender on his hip and automatically is in great offensive position to receive and score. Our guards and forwards are young right now but learning by baptism under fire and we can see with each passing game their growth and improvement.
